    Is Avro Energy the supplier I’ve been looking for?

    Ask people why they switch energy suppliers and the chances are that the answer will be value for money.

    What makes Avro Energy different?

    • One of the ways in which Avro energy keeps things simple is by only offering dual fuel deals and not, at the time of writing, sourcing green options. In simple terms they provide a no frills back to basic option with a wide range of tariffs.
    • All of the deals are fixed rate for 12 months and payable by a monthly Direct Debit, although Avro Energy also offer a pre-payment meter option.
    • Despite only being around for 5 years or so, Avro Energy have already built a fairly sizeable customer base and manage to outscore the traditional Big Six energy suppliers in terms of customer satisfaction.

    Let’s take a look at Avro Energy in more detail to see if they live up to the promise of a simple and affordable energy solution…

    A brief history of Avro Energy

    The Avro Energy story begins back in 2012 when managing director Jake Brown decided that, in his words, it was time for ‘a different approach to simplistic supply’. They began supplying energy to customers in 2015 and fairly quickly built to a customer base which now numbers 40,000 electricity customers and 30,000 gas customers. The tariffs offered come without exit fees and the Avro energy login process has been made as quick and simple as possible. The overall Avro energy offering can be summed up as follows:

    • Simple billing.
    • Most bills paid via monthly Direct Debit.
    • Highly competitive pricing.
    • An online presence which is basic but easy to use.

    If you’re looking for a cutting edge energy supplier with a huge range of options and an app for every device then Avro Energy may not be the supplier for you. On the other hand, if you want an affordable tariff which you can basically set up and then forget about, it could be the ideal choice. The question is whether the experience of buying energy from Avro Energy lives up to the promise of simplicity, so we decided to find out.

    Keep your energy plan nice and simple!

    How easy is it to switch to Avro Energy?

    Switch to Avro Energy today!The Avro Energy switching process has been kept as simple as possible. Although their website, at the time of writing, lists no fewer than 189 different tariffs – ranging from Simple Energy, through Simple and Connect all the way to Simple and uSuperior 12m – the choice is made automatically when you register with the company. You simply have to provide the following information:

    • Your address.
    • Your gas and electricity usage as measured by the most recent bills.
    • The amount you spend of gas and electricity per month or year.
    • Your current supplier and the current tariff.
    • Your current payment method.

    Armed with this information the Avro Energy website will provide a quote detailing how much you could save per year and what the monthly Direct Debit amount will be. It should be noted that, although Avro Energy do supply to customers with prepayment meters, this option isn’t offered on their simple switch page.

    The easiest way to switch to Avro, or any other energy supplier, is to contact Papernest on 0330 054 0017 and our Switch plan will take care of everything else.
